Alaska State Troopers at 1:23 a.m. went to a disturbance at a Twin Peaks Loop home in Anchor Point. Troopers alleged a 43-year-old Anchor Point woman assaulted a family member and destroyed property. Troopers arrested the woman for fourth-degree assault, domestic violence, and fifth-degree criminal mischief. Troopers said alcohol was involved in the case.

Troopers at 10:20 a.m. received a report of a break-in at a Voznesenka home that happened sometime during the past two weeks. The complainant said Israeli makeup, a Nissan Xterra car, a boat and a personal watercraft on separate trailers were taken from a garage. The Nissan and personal watercraft were later recovered, but the boat remains missing. The boat is a 16-foot homemade fiberglass boat that is white with a gray stripe.

Troopers received a report of an assault with a firearm at property in Tuxedni Bay on the west side of Cook Inlet. Troopers went by helicopter to the scene and arrested a 67-year-old Ninilchik man of three counts of second-degree assault, one count of third-degree assault and one count of fourth-degree misconduct involving a weapon. Troopers alleged the man fired a shotgun toward another person and then hit the person three times with the shotgun butt. The victim videotaped the incident. The assault appeared to be unprovoked, troopers said.
